I would like to do fraxel for my acne scars. They are on my cheeks, chin area, and forehead. I would like to do 5 treatments for 1, 500 dollars. Is this ok with you?
There are many different types of acne scars and each requires its own optimum treatment or combination of treatments. Fraxel is fractionated Erbium laser. It has a 4-5 day down time after each treatment and multiple treatments are needed. The results are OK. Its usually not a waste of money or time but the best option is true surgical dermabrasion depending on your skin type. I think there is a place for fraxel for certain patients but there are multiple other options as well and the best thing is to see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who offers multiple different techniques so that you can be sure their recommendation is based on the best option for you and not because that is the only treatment choice they offer. Good luck.
